Searching Field Sherston


I’m in love with this residence designed by Caroline Holdaway. Conventional with color and sample makes it so heat and alluring. (Photographs: Simon Brown)

This property initially shaped a part of a 16thC teaching inn. It’s a flat fronted stone village home with cross mullion home windows on the sting of the Cotswolds. The only function of this gloriously neat and completely proportioned home was to face as a searching field for my purchasers. We eliminated a dividing wall downstairs opening up an ethereal house for socializing but retaining it’s cosy enchantment for intimate hearth evenings. Reclaimed timber flooring and present stopping Raku fired ground tiles give allure in bucket masses to the kitchen and breakfast room. We bought some completely figured reclaimed elm from which we crafted the kitchen and located some papier mache refracted glass cinema lights that illuminate the kitchen work surfaces. Rigorously sourced antiques and consumer artwork work made this property a delight to work on.
